Morning Meds; 4 1 22
Angelo, the trapeze artist, clinging to his swing, leapt from his perch.
Arching his way across the ring he watched his partner release a swing and push it towards him.
When the empty swing reached Angelo, he let go of the swing he was holding with one hand and reached out grabbing the other swing.
Then all motion stopped.
High above the sounds of the gasping crowd hung poor Angelo, one hand clinging to each of the swings.
In a moment of doubt, he failed to release the first swing that had carried him to the next.
Suspended in place, dangling, he tried to decide which swing was the best one to believe in.
In the process of transcending beliefs you can’t fully embrace something new till you fully release the old.
It can be a harrowing experience.
Old beliefs die hard, but once we can truly let go we can feel our momentum return.
So for all of us who are transitioning spiritual beliefs, hang in there.
It gets better.
